Why stop at just one spa treatment? Try Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Wash too.

Gilchrist & Soames

Birchbox Breakdown

London-based Gilchrist & Soames has been supplying products to top-tier spas for more than three decades, so it’s no surprise this lotion leaves our skin with a fresh-from-the-treatment-table glow. Marine extracts hydrate and pamper skin, and the fresh aqualeaf and citrus scent adds a bit of extra aromatherapy.

How it Works

Extracts of Japanese sea fennel calm irritation and soothe skin. Other sea-based vitamins and minerals absorb into skin to moisturize it and reverse environmental damage. And best of all, the formula contains absolutely no phthalates, mineral oils, parabens, or petrol-derived ingredients.

How to Use

Smooth a generous amount onto skin after showering, or whenever skin feels dry.

I love the smell and texture of this lotion. I love that it is not heavy, but it does the job in hydrating my skin perfectly. LOVE IT!

great lotion
Sampled

This lotion is wonderful. It is not oily like some other lotions, water is the first ingredient, and it feels ultra light weight. The scent is really pretty and leaves my hands feeling soft and amazing.

Lovely Lotion
Sampled

Very fresh and light, not too cloying of a smell. Good texture. Perfect for summer and will not compete with my perfume that I wear on a daily basis. Something I would actually buy on my own.

Love this Line!
Sampled

I really love this line! I received a sample from their London line and loved it and loved this one as well. The scent is really low key but nice. It can definitely be a unisex scent. It dries quickly as well.

Not my favorite!
Sampled

I received this as a sample, and overall, I wasn't too thrilled about it. I really like G & S products, and I love the actual lotion. But the smell is what I dislike about it. The lotion itself is great, moisturizing, light, absorbs quickly.. But I couldn't get past the smell. Apparently it's just not my taste though, because my Mom LOVED it! So she's pretty happy with her little purse sized G & S lotion. :)

Lovely body lotion
SampledPurchased

I enjoyed using this body lotion when it arrived in my Birchbox. The fragrance is light and fresh. It is a good body lotion for summer, as it is not too heavy or greasy. I bought some to give my sister for a gift, along with the shower gel.

Good Product!
Sampled

I really liked this body lotion. The scent was fresh and it wasn't overwhelming. The lotion made my skin much softer without the greasy, sticky feeling that some other lotions leave. Overall, I would recommend this product!

Lovely Scent and Feel

This product has a great, soothing feel to it. It has a subtle scent that doesn't attack the senses and it keeps you moisturized for a good while.

This lotion smells so good and is the perfect size for traveling. I took with me on a trip and it came in handy for my dry cracked hands

I hate the feeling of lotion so this one is great! It is really light and it smells good too! I have also gotten a few compliments about the fact that my skin looks really shiny after Ive used it!
